Haha. For anyone who is interested, that is a kasumi Mizuno gyuto sticking to the side of a potato after completing a slice. We cut a bunch of potatoes using several knives. The two standouts were on loan: this knife and the Gengetsu 240 carried by JKI. The funny thing was, Pesky kept raving about the Miz but I didn't feel it was nearly as amazing a cutter as he did. It had significant sticking issues, too, whereas I felt the Gengetsu definitely ranked among the finest cutters I've had the pleasure of using. Anyway, I tried cutting potatoes using every possible motion and all parts of the blade and felt it was equally uninspiring. Then, Pesky gave it another shot, made a few slices and then let go of the knife and this picture shows what happened next: nothing. Perfect release for a lefty and perfect sticktion on the right side. Pretty funny, no?
